Thomas Kilner age 44, died 21 May 1856 in 30 Trinity Street Huddersfield, Woollen Merchant, witnessed by Anne R Kilner. I don't have a death for William so he may or may not be there in 1851.

I'd like a look up for the family in 1851 please.

Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

But who are Charles & Lewis? :2fun:

Time to have lunch and let the computer cool down.

Be back in 30 min. :)


Hi Dave

The Huddersfield Chronicle and West Yorkshire Advertiser (West Yorkshire, England), Saturday, April 26, 1851; pg. 5; Issue 56. 19th Century British Library Newspapers: Part II.
On the 20th inst., aged 2 years, Lewis, son of Mr. Thomas Kilner, merchant, Trinity-street.

Hello cp,


At the parish church in the parish of Huddersfield in the county of York 25th of Sept 1839
Thomas Kilner age 26 Merchant of Carr House, Father Thomas Kilner, also a merchant
Anne Richardson Bamforth, age 21, lower Cudworth, Parish of Royston, father William Bamforth, gentleman

There must be children I (and also another researcher) don't have.

My video card is up to 52 degrees now. Supposed to be safe to 60 but I'm not going to test that. :D

Hello cp,

Thanks for looking.

Even Fred wouldn't know. :2fun:

Now the humidity increases in the late afternoon. :eek:


A real mystery.

It's probably time I revisited this branch of my tree to see if any more gaps can be filled.
Going over old threads and came across this:
The Leeds Mercury (Leeds, England), Saturday, October 5, 1844; Issue 5783
Same day, Alice Ann, daughter of Mr. Thomas Kilner, jun, Merchant, Huddersfield

I think at the time we assumed she belonged to the other Thomas and Ann but:

Name: Alice Anne Kilner
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1844
Registration district: Huddersfield Inferred County: Yorkshire - West Riding, West Yorkshire Volume: 22 Page: 346 (click to see others on page)

Since our Thomas and Anne were married in 1839 and the first child we have on record is William b 1845 it's quite posssible this is one of theirs
I have Charles as the first. But it would make sense given the marriage date that he was not their first child. Possibly one before Alice too.

Deaths Sep 1844

I meant Charles of course! That's what happens when I try to think at 5 in the morning.

I checked for other possible Kilner births between 1840 and 1843 in Huddersfield but there' s too many to try to narrow it down.
Yes, I looked too. The newspapers have been a help with a few of the family.

I have access to the Gale Collection through eResources on the NLA here.
